Page Eight HOPE (ARK.) STAR Wednesday, September 18, 19?4 Dr.Lamb When is T,B. inactive disease? By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D, DEAR DR. LAMB - Will you please answer some questions for me about tuberculosis? My doctor will not explain to me, so I hope you will. I have inactive T.B. and have had for two years or more. What does that mean? Will it likely become active? Was it active once? Can it become cured? My husband coughs a lot but was not X rayed. Why? I have never had anything done for my T.B., so I guess if it was active once it just became inactive on its own. I'm a senior citizen with emphysema and chronic bronchitis. DEAR READER - The most important thing is what your doctor means by inactive tuberculosis. Usually it means that you were once infected with tuberculosis, but there is no evidence of any live T.B. germs or continuing tuberculosis process. In about 99 per cent of people who are infected with tuberculosis germs, the body develops immunity to the infection, contains it, and there is no further difficulty. There may be some old scars where the infection was, that represent healed tuberculosis. The healing occurs on its own. In other instances the infection is activated or there is some breakdown in the body's immunity, and the bacteria start to increase in number, causing cavities in the lung and other changes from active tuberculosis. There is still some argument about whether an old infection which appears cured can become active and cause problems later. Some doctors believe this happens, and others believe when older people develop active tuberculosis it is from a rein- fection. There is an increase in frequency in tuberculosis in later years. In any case, because of the higher rate in older people I do think that a chest X ray every year in this age group as part of the regu- lar medical evaluation is a good idea, whether or not you have had previous infection with tuberculosis. Obviously your tuberculosis was once an active infection, which it had to be to leave any evidence of it, and you belong to the group of 99 per cent where it became inactive and is no longer of major medical importance. Today even persistent active tuberculosis can usually be cured, but the best results occur with early detection before any damage is done. It is hard, for example, to do much about reversing some lung damage once it has already occurred. Probably you had an infection when you were young. The first infection often occurs in childhood. Your husband definitely should have a chest X ray. There are lots of things besides tuberculosis that can cause a cough. Anyone who has a cough that lasts longer than two weeks should seek medical attention. Although tuberculosis is not the problem it once was, I'd like to emphasize that it is still a major health problem. It is quite important to find all cases of tuberculosis and to check the status of all persons who have been in contact with anyone with active . tuberculosis. It is still a common problem in Mexican Americans, Orientals and those of Indian extraction. In many parts of the world, particularly in parts of Asia and Latin America, it is still -the most common cause of death and a leading medical problem. Anyone living in these areas has a greater chance of being exposed to tuberculosis. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper", P.O.

After that brilliant start she had no trouble drawing trumps, discarding her jack of hearts on the queen of clubs; ruffing her two small diamonds and making seven for a real top score. Ayres just couldn't help asking the declarer, "How did you work out that play of the king of hearts. It was sensational." The crushing reply was, "Chest your cards, young man. Chest your cards!' (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) r By Oswald & James Jacoby The late Ayres Bombeck, one of the best players in the Middlewest, used to Jove to tell this story on himself. Ayres never made an effort to see his opponents' cards, but if they waved them in his face he would not shut his eyes. Two of those little old ladies were playing against 50-year-old Ayers. They got so excited while bidding a slam that North managed to show the king and three small hearts while there was South flashing the jack- deuce. The bidding is typical for little old ladies. They tend never to bid a slam without using Blackwood on the way. Ayres led a low heart. Power Co, okays test The bidding has been: 18 West North East South 14 Pass 24 Pass 2 N.T.

LITTLE ROCK (AP) Southwestern Electric Power Co. has no objection to a wind tunnel test related to its application to construct the proposed Flint Creek power plant, a SWEPCO official testified Tuesday. John W. Turk Jr., vice president and power superintendent for SWEPCO, was testifying during the second day of Public Service Commission hearings on SWEPCO's application to build the coal-fired plant near Gentry in Benton County. SWEPCO's partner in the proposed construction is the Arkansas Electric Cooperatives Corp. The wind tunnel test would ?<nmf the ;t'iequacy of the 241- Vw.t '-inis-sion stacks proposed for the 530-megawatt facility. The state Pollution Control and Ecology Commission has criticized the proposed stack height as being too short to avoid a "downwash" that may occur when the smokestack plume goes around the building nearest the stack. The effect can cause a hjpavy concentration of pollutants next to the stack. Turk said his utility does not propose to use a system of reducing power load when state air quality standards might be violated because he did not think the pollution control agency looked on the "variation as a way to meet the standard." Canada's chief economic problem in 1973 was inflation. Television Logs RFD 6 6:50 Your Pastor 6 12 Wednesday Night 6:00 Travel Film 2 Truth Or Consequences 3 by krrtfe. ff.< v. Q.
